The King's Speech.

On Monday we went to the movies, a very rare treat levered in amongst all our activities, considering the nearest cinema is 80 miles distant. I'm very glad we did take time out though, because The King's Speech is a very fine film, perhaps a great one. I've read that it contains historical inaccuracies but we didn't see any of consequence and we both know quite a lot of the facts surrounding that dangerous epoch in British and world history.

A really good movie, like a really good book, inspires you to feel better about your life and human life in general. Nobody can say exactly why. Anyway this one did it for us. This is the triumph and the tragedy. This is reality. It's worth a million miles of virtual. Go see it for yourself.
